It looks like the new Perodua Alza variant that Perodua teased on their website last week is on schedule for its January 2014 launch, and here’s a first view of the new 2014 Alza, sighted by reader manspex_kp2 being transported by trailer, probably en route to dealerships.
That alloy wheel design is the same one that we saw in the teaser images. What’s new that we can see from these photos is a new tailgate design that puts the Perodua and Alza logos on a new blacked-out section below the rear windscreen. A front shot also reveals the new front bumper design, which is paired with a differently shaped front grille and new clear headlamps without orange blinkers.
Other changes for the new Alza that Perodua has already revealed via its teaser image include a monotone black interior in place of the two-tone black/grey combo we have now, new instrument cluster design, (possibly optional) new multimedia system with navigation and reverse camera functions, a roof-mounted monitor, an updated armrest with a storage compartment, split-folding third-row seats and ISOFIX child seat anchors.
The fact that the teaser image shows a front bumper with fog lamps while these Alzas being transported have no fog lamps means that this new Alza is a multi-variant product, which points to an overall facelift of the range. We will be back in January with more details of this updated 2014 Perodua Alza once it has been launched.
